Terry, Anna B. Anna B. Terry, age 105 passed away on Monday, July 15, 2002. She was born September 20, 1896 in Kilbourn (Wisconsin Dells), Wisconsin, the daughter of Jerome and Margaret (Morrissey) Baggot. She was a graduate of Wisconsin Dells High School. While growing up in the Dells, Anna always spoke fondly of her work with the Bennett Family Studio and of her work as a rural mail carrier. In the winter with her horses, and the summer with her Model T, Anna enjoyed delivering the mail as well as the news of the day to her patrons who were her many friends waiting eagerly by their mailboxes. On September 1, 1926, Anna married Patrick Leo Terry at St. Cecilia Church in Wisconsin Dells. The couple farmed on Highway 33 in the Town of Delton and started their family. Patrick passed away on April 25, 1937. After the sudden death of her husband, Anna did her best to hold the farm and her young family together. She worked at the Island Woolen Mill, St. Mary's Ringling Hospital, and as a lab technician at Badger Ordnance Works. She was both our mother and our father. Through some very special but difficult times, she always remained positive. The importance of family and faith were taught by example. Though Anna's voice was soft, her words spoke volumes. Some of her most memorable advice, now being passed on to a fourth generation, is as follows: "We will never have to worry as long as we have each other." "You have your name and your credit; keep them both good." "You do what you think is right." "There is no such word as can't. You can do anything you put your mind to." "If you are unable to say something good, it would be better not to speak." "Just because everyone else is jumping off the cliff, you don't have to." And always, "I will be praying for you." Anna was active in St. Joseph's Catholic Church of Baraboo, St. Joseph's CCW, Webster Prairie Homemakers, and the Wisconsin Dells Tuesday Club. She enjoyed gardening and was an avid reader and writer. In addition to her husband Patrick, Anna was preceded in death by an infant son, Edward Terry; a daughter, Mary Margaret (Terry) Todd; a great-grandson, Alexander Terry; her parents, Jerome and Margaret Baggot; her brothers, Gerald, Leo, and Matthew Baggot; and her sisters, Margaret Tangney, Helen and Mary Baggot.
